Typically, a smartphone that suports dual SIM cards without a contract from a carrier is quite expensive. Usually, the price for such phones is in the hundreds. However, the new Blu Dash 3.5 breaks the trend and comes in at just under one hundred dollars, which is quite impressive for a fully unlocked Android smartphone.


The Blu Dash 3.5 is available in the US and Latin America for $99. Blu plans on launching a version of the phone that only supports one SIM in the Latin America in November. We assume this phone will come in even cheaper than the dual SIM card version, but that remains to be seen.

The Blu Dash 3.5 comes with a 3.5 inch capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 320 x 480. It is available in white or black and there are optional door covers for the back of the phone in pink, blue, green, and yellow that offer some extra customization. The phone comes with a 4GB microSD card for storage.

The phone supports GSM quad band, EDGE, and 3G HSDPA, so it will work on cellular networks that support those. The phone runs Android 2.3 for its operating system and sports a QUALCOMM 1 GHz processor. It features a 2-megapixel rear camera. No, this is not a top of the line phone by any means, but when you consider the price, and the fact that is not tired to a contract, it is certainly not a bad deal at all.
